Paul McCartney returned to his hometown of Liverpool, England, this past Saturday along with a camera crew and CBS Late Late Show host James Corden.
McCartney was in town to perform at the Philharmonic pub in Liverpool as part of a segment with Corden. But the former Beatles bassist also took to the streets with Corden visiting — among other locations — Penny Lane, McCartney's former Forthlin Road home and the Beatles statues at Pier Head.
It was at the statues where McCartney, Corden and the CBS film crew ran into a Beatles tour!
"She stops as usual at the bronze statues of the Boys on Pier Head along the Mersey...and who's there? Paul," Dashow explained. "Shooting a thing with James Corden. Now THAT'S quite a Beatles tour!"
The Beatles in London blog reported that Sir Paul performed "Love Me Do," "I Wanna Be Your Man," "Back in the USSR," "Birthday," "I've Got a Feeling" and "Hey Jude" during his Philharmonic pub set.
McCartney has long spoken lovingly of Liverpool in interviews. Ultimate Classic Rock points out that in 2015 the singer talks about how his hometown brings out the "ordinary guy" in him.
